Fight for your right for a free net

[26 April 2006]

By Jason Gross

Following up a previous posting about how the government is considering a way to divide the Net into have’s and have-not’s, there’s something you can do to make your voice heard about this.

From MoveOn.org: “Congress is now pushing a law that would end the free and open Internet as we know it. Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet’s First Amendment. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. So Amazon doesn’t have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer.”

Save the Internet
